Upcoming Live Stream! Send In Your Questions!

I am thrilled to announce that we will be holding our very first live stream on Monday, July 8, 2019 at 1PM Eastern Daylight Time. That’s 12 Noon Central, 11AM Mountain, and 10AM Pacific. Trainer Kliph of Stur It Up wil be joining us, along with, perhaps, a few surprise guests. We would love to have all of you watching the live stream and asking your questions. Please read on for more information:

Live Stream Topic and General Info:

As stated, our live stream will be held on Monday, July 8, 2019 at 1:00:PM Eastern. We will be discussing the topics of replacing your traditional desktop or laptop with an iPad, and replacing your traditional television service with an Apple TV and internet-based streaming TV services. The live stream will be audio only – no video.

How to Listen:

Our live stream will take place using Periscope. You can download Periscope from the App Store if you do not already have the app. Creating an account with Periscope is quick, easy, and free. In fact, if you already use Twitter, you are all set. Just sign into Periscope using Twitter. You may also sign in with Facebook. Alternatively, you may create a new account.

After signing in or creating an account, be sure to search for and follow “TTJTalk”. You may also wish to follow me on Twitter @TalkTTJ. Enable notifications to find out when we go live, or open the Periscope app at 1PM Eastern on Monday to join the live stream.

How to Comment and Ask Questions:

While we cannot guarantee that all questions and comments will be addressed, and while reserve the right to choose the comments and questions we feature, we do welcome all questions and comments related to the specified topics of discussion stated above. Keep questions short and to the point – two or three sentences max, and include your first name. You may optionally include your town or city as well…such as “John from Atlanta”. Keep it clean and family friendly. Comments and questions with profanity or other content deemed inappropriate at the sole discretion of TTJ will be ignored.

There are several ways to leave comments and ask questions. First, you may send questions and comments via iMessage at any time, even now, right up through the live stream. Just use the Messages app on your Apple device to send iMessages to:

Thetechjuggernaut@icloud.com

You may send text or audio messages. Audio messages must be no more than 30 seconds in length.

Voice messages may also be sent to us now and right up through the live stream, by visiting our Anchor Profile Page.

Finally, during the live stream itself, you may use the chat feature built directly into Periscope to chat with us. You may also tweet your questions during the stream to @TalkTTJ.

What If I Can’t Join Live?

No problem. The entire live stream will be recorded and made available as a podcast a few hours after the stream is finished. If you cannot attend live, please make sure to submit your questions ahead of time using one of the methods described above – Apple iMessage or Anchor voice message. We look forward to seeing you all for the live stream!:)

Calling All Willing Participants! Help Wanted!

Apple at its recent WWDC opening keynote, announced the upcoming release of iOS 13, iPad OS, TVOS 13, Watch OS 6, and Mac OS Catalina. As expected, these are major new software releases for all Apple platforms. However, this year promises to be even more exciting than typical releases, as all platforms include major new features and revisions.

Would you like a chance to help shape the final releases of this new software, discovering bugs and reporting them to Apple before the official releases occur? Are you a fairly competent user of one or more of the above Apple platforms? Do you possess a positive attitude and a strong work ethic for volunteer opportunities? If you answered yes, we would love for you to become a beta tester!

Apple each summer makes available public betas of most Apple platforms, and 2019 promises to be no different. Beginning this July, Apple will release public beta versions of iOS, iPad OS, TVOS, and Mac OS. Testers can install the beta software and receive a sneak preview of all the new features, while helping to perfect the final releases by discovering and reporting bugs and other issues. This is truly an incredible opportunity and an awesome experience – a chance to make a difference for millions of Apple users around the world. As beta testers, trainer Kliph and I run a support group for beta testers. Though not at all affiliated with Apple, we do help to facilitate the process and provide a forum for testers to discuss their findings, ask questions, and more. Since every Apple platform contains massive overhauls this year, we believe it is especially important to get as many beta testers as possible.

If you wish to become a part of this amazing experience, head on over to https://beta.apple.com and sign in. Once you have agreed to the terms, including the nondisclosure agreement, please send a blank email to:

Public-beta-users+subscribe@groups.io

This will let us know of your interest in joining our beta testers support group. We will use this group to communicate going forward, including announcing the date of an important Zoom conference for beta testers.

If you have any questions before joining, please use email or iMessage to contact thetechjuggernaut@icloud.com, or use one of the other means listed on our Contact page to get in touch, and let us know your name, your email address, and the fact that you wish to become a beta tester. Thank you.

TTJ Now Offers Support Via Text Chat for Apple iMessage Users

TTJ is pleased to announce our new iMessage address. Beginning tomorrow, June 21, 2019, at 10AM Eastern, users of any Apple product can simply send a text message to thetechjuggernaut@icloud.com, as long as you have iMessage enabled. Our iMessage address will allow us to reach even more people in revolutionary and convenient ways, using a platform most of us already know and love. We are also thrilled to announce extended chat hours, exclusively through iMessage. Text us Monday through Saturday, 10AM to Midnight Eastern Time. During these hours, users who text us technical support or product information questions can expect to receive answers within a four hour window at most. Most inquiries will be answered within just a few minutes. This is just another way we strive to put the customer first and become the only tech you’ll ever need. Happy texting, and remember to be safe, and never text and drive.:)

Introducing TTJ Talk – Our Brand New Tech Podcast!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that The Tech Juggernaut has officially launched a new podcast entitled TTJ Talk. This podcast will supplement our audio tutorials on this site, not replace them, and with new episodes coming each week, you’ll have lots to look forward to.

TTJ Talk will offer quick tips in our Tech Tip Tuesdays episodes, as well as providing short how-tos, tech news, product reviews, and special guest interviews. Trainer Kliph, who many of you know from our free online courses, will be a recurring guest on the show, and other members from the TTJ Instructor Team will join periodically. We will also interview other guests to find out how they are using and benefiting from various Apple products and other hardware, software, and services. We will even live stream some of our episodes, so you’ll be able to ask your questions and potentially get them answered live on the air.

We are anxiously awaiting approval of our podcast from Apple, so you’ll be able to use the Apple Podcasts app, or your HomePod, to listen to every episode of our podcast. In the mean time, the show is already available on a few other podcast sites, so we’d love to give you advanced access to all of our published episodes right now.

To visit our podcast page, click This Link.

There, you’ll be able to listen to every episode of our podcast and find out which platforms have approved our show. You’ll also be able to record short voice messages with your tech questions for possible inclusion in future episodes. Enjoy.:)
